The main point is that kinesthetic learners learn best when they can move around and touch things. They are not being difficult when they cannot sit still in class, they are just being them.

I love watching children learn in the way that works best for them. I covered the learning styles in earlier videos – see the kinesthetic one here. But what does it mean for your child if they are a kinesthetic learner? How can you help them succeed? Let’s look at tools for kinesthetic learners.

The main point is that kinesthetic learners learn best when they can move around and touch things. They are not being difficult when they cannot sit still in class, they are just being them. Let’s quickly cover some characteristics of kinesthetic learners. 

  • Move about, tap pencils, jiggle legs, etc. while doing schoolwork
  • Do not like to spend a lot of time reading
  • Need to take frequent breaks while studying
  • Have difficulty sitting for long periods of time
  • Enjoy doing physical activities
  • Can be considered hyperactive
  • Like to manipulate objects while working through problems
  • Often excel in sport, drama, and dance

Here is a vlog and blog post I did on helping kinesthetic learners succeed.

For over 30 years I have worked with children in a variety of capacities, whether as a teacher or tutor, a babysitter, a camp leader, or family advocate. I have always found a way to connect with children, to help them understand themselves and the world around.

I am Mummy to trinational twincesses who keep me on my toes with their questions, their commentaries, their shenanigans and acts of spontenudity.

Wife, world traveler, musician, crafting queen and self-proclaimed nerd; I love to take what I see, glean, know and help families to find their groove and be successful.
